From swing to sublime ballads, Clare Teal’s concerts with her 17-piece Hollywood Orchestra, conducted by the internationally acclaimed trumpeter, composer and arranger Guy Barker, are renowned across the country for their fabulous arrangements interspersed with Clare’s warm and witty storytelling, guaranteeing the audience something personal and very special.

This rich, jazz infused repertoire explores timeless classics penned by the legendary musical storytellers of the last 100 years, and celebrates giants of the Great American and British Songbooks through to the work of more contemporary writers crafting the standards of today.

Featuring music from the swing greats, including Ella Fitzgerald, Doris Day, Nina Simone and Peggy Lee, The First Ladies Of Swing promises an evening of inspired music and unbridled entertainment, performed by first class musicians.
